AG files new charge sheet against Galamsey Queen Aisha Huang, 4 others

The Attorney General’s Department has for the third time filed a new charge sheet against the popular Chinese Queen Aisha Huang and four others.

In court today, when the case was called, a Senior State Attorney Mrs Mercy Arthur said they have filed a new charge sheet that comes with a new fact sheet on July 5 to replace the second one filed on May 23.

The court also granted bail to the second and third accused persons who could not meet their bail conditions previously.

The court was told by Charlse Owusu Juanah that they have found their missing passports which were one of the requirement and same have been submitted to the court registry.

The case has been adjourned to July 12 and 17 for the commencement of the trial.

A Chinese interpretor who was expected in court today to help with interpretation was absent forcing the adjournment.

Previous Arrest

Some national security operatives, on July 30, 2016, raided various gold mining sites to impound excavators and a pickup vehicle belonging to the Chinese woman that were being used for the illegal mining operation.

She and her assigns had degraded lands, destroyed cocoa farms and polluted water bodies in several communities in the Amansie area, and the national security, in an attempt to clamp down on her activities, raided the sites.

At Gyaaman village, the activities of the Chinese galamsey operator allegedly left six children dead after the victims drowned in open pits.

However, the Ashanti Regional Security Council, then headed by John Alexander Ackon found it expedient to release the four excavators and the Toyota pickup to the galamsey miner to the chagrin of the local residents and owners of the mining concessions, Volta Resources Limited.

The former Minister explained that the Operation was not sanctioned and hence the need for the equipment to be returned to their owners.
